GetThere Integration

GetThere is an online travel management solution, which helps employees book tickets for their business trips. You can configure travel policies in GetThere and employees from your organization will be able to select their own flights, hotels, etc., based on the travel policy which you’ve set. Tickets will be booked automatically as soon as trip requests have been approved in Zoho Expense.

How the integration works

After integrating with GetThere, the users in your organization can make their own travel bookings while creating trips in Zoho Expense. Users can choose from a list of flights, hotels, and other modes of transport, which GetThere will fetch based on the trip’s itinerary. Once the users choose their preferred option, they can send it for approval in Zoho Expense. When the trip gets approved in Zoho Expense, GetThere will make these bookings automatically, thereby saving time and effort. You can also choose to customize the approval and ticket booking process in Zoho Expense.

Benefits of the integration

  1. Users can make their own bookings: While creating trip requests, users can select their preferred flights, hotels, and other modes of transport before submitting it for approval. Once approved, the tickets will be booked automatically.

  2. Establish better control and policy compliance: You can set up your organization’s travel policies in GetThere with easy-to-use templates and customize your travel programs effectively. When users create trips, GetThere will only display flights, hotels, and other modes of transport which are compatible with the policy you’ve set.
